We need a slogan/motto to go along with the new logo. There will need to be several different ways of using, so we will likely need a few different ones. We'll need something to follow after the shorter "OSGeo" nickname. And also something to follow the longer title: "Open Source Geospatial Foundation". See if you can avoid any words already in the title.

Please submit your possible mottos here:

  1. Your Open Source Compass (was part of Aaron's logo submission)
  2. Compass to the Open Source GeoSpatial World (building on above)
  3. "It's a spheroid, get over it."

  6. Open directions
  7. Enabling Geo-Power
  8. Pure Mapping Power

  11. Find it with the tools from the foundation
  12. Open the source and find your way
  13. OSGeo -- Where it's at
